Everything we know about the BlackBerry PlayBook

We were excited and a little bit relieved that RIM announced its widely-rumored BlackBerry PlayBook (with video) yesterday at the BlackBerry Developer Conference in San Francisco.

Although we did learn some specs–like the tablet’s dimensions–there’s still much that RIM isn’t telling. We’ll share what we know and will update our list as soon as we learn more.

What are the specifications?

7-inch screen (1,024×600 pixels)
5.1 inches tall
7.6 inches wide
0.4 inch (9.7mm) thick
0.9 pounds
3 megapixel front-facing HD camera
5 megapixel rear-facing HD camera
1GHz dual-core processor
1080p high-definition video playback
HTML5-capable browser
802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi
Adobe Flash 10.1 support
Adobe AIR support
H.264, MPEG4, and WMV, HDMI video output
Micro USB, Micro HDMI, and DLNA media streaming
Enterprise-strength e-mail security
Is the PlayBook a phone?
No. RIM’s new device will be an Internet-enabled tablet. However, RIM is emphasizing video calling over Wi-Fi, so you can expect to see video chatting software.
